About Us

Our Passion

At King's Brakes we have a passion for repairing and caring for your safety.

We will always provide a free brake check for your vehicle, trailer, race car, vintage car or horse float. Not many things in life are free. Call us at take us up on our offer!

Nothing but quality braking components

We only use quality braking components in our repairs to maximise the stopping power and lifespan of your brakes.

Your brake discs and drums get damaged over time, and unless they've reached the minimum thickness allowed by manufacturer's specifications, it's often cheaper and more efficient to machine them instead of replacing them altogether.

Brake Services

Our Experience


As specialist brake technicians, we can perform brake services, repairs and upgrades for all makes and models.

If you've got an older model vehicle that needs its brakes updated, or a new vehicle that simply needs new pads, we've got you covered.


If you need a new brake hose for your vehicle, we are able to manufacture it to the exact specifications provided by the manufacturer, quicker than most other suppliers can order in the parts.


Antilock brake systems use electronic sensors to determine wheel speed and prevent skidding and loss of traction.

If these systems malfunction, your stopping distance can be increased and your vehicle can be unsafe to drive. Our workshop is equipped to perform ABS diagnostic testing.


From caravans to horse floats and even boat trailers, our workshop has the facilities to professionally repair all types of trailer brakes.


At King's Brake Service, we machine all brake discs and brake drums onsite.

Our brake lathe fits brake discs and drums from vintage vehicles to race cars and trailers, maximising the life of your brake components and ensuring the safety of your vehicle and its occupants.


If you drive a classic or race car, we have a huge range of brake services to suit all applications. We can upgrade older drum brake vehicles to disc brake, as well as offering solutions for improved braking power in race cars.

We can repair, upgrade and replace brakes for all restoration work, muscle cars, hot rods, tuff trucks, race cars and vintage vehicles.

What Our Clients Say?

5 star service, a business that wants to help you out above all which is few and far between these days. They are very busy (which should say enough) but will work with you to get you back on the road. Can’t thank the team at Kings Brakes enough with the help they gave me with my trailer.

ARBD Constructions

Service was quick. Although they didn't fix my issue as it was something out of their hands, they talked me through the things I could do before bringing my car back.


I would like to thank Phil and all the staff at Kings Brake Service, for their professional advice, customer service, attention to detail with all the repairs carried out on my 2008 Nissan Patrol, that had been up graded from a 3 ltr to a 6.5 ltr Chev diesel. During the work that was carried out on the vehicle, I was kept informed with the costs and time it would take to complete, as they had to correct issues that were created by another business. I would have to say, I have no hesitation with recommending Phil or staff to carry out repairs on any ones vehicle, as they are very focused on safety, with a high standard in workmanship. This type of standard is becoming few and far between in businesses today. The brakes are the best they have ever been, making it a pleasure to drive and importantly, stopping! Thanks again guys.

Greg Hughes

Excellent service from a well established family company. Very rare to find this level of service anywhere today. Professional, courteous and importantly knowledgeable. Can't recommend highly enough.
